This repository presents a proof-of-concept of CVE-2024-23897 (*Discovered by sonarsource*)

# CVE-2024-23897 | File read in jenkins 

## Disclamer
This code is a proof of concept of the vulnerability, I'm not pushing anyone to use it on confluence instances they don't own.  
This tool has been developed for research and educational purposes only and I will not be held responsible for any use you may make of it.

## Description
According to [Jenkins Security Advisory 2024-01-24 ](
Jenkins uses the args4j library to parse command arguments and options on the Jenkins controller when processing CLI commands. This command parser has a feature that replaces an @ character followed by a file path in an argument with the file’s contents (expandAtFiles). This feature is enabled by default and Jenkins 2.441 and earlier, LTS 2.426.2 and earlier does not disable it. This allows attackers to read arbitrary files on the Jenkins controller file system using the default character encoding of the Jenkins controller process.

- Attackers with Overall/Read permission can read entire files.
- Attackers without Overall/Read permission can read the first few lines of files.

## Help
$ python3 -h
